Xenios Thrasyvoulou

Founder and CEO of PeoplePerHour

Xenios started out as an engineer working for a FTSE 100 company. Within six months he realised he was allergic to the bureaucracy of large corporations and at the age of 23 he began creating a service that allowed time-starved individuals to outsource work to multi-skilled individuals on a ‘per hour’ basis. Three years later PeoplePerHour was born. Responsible for the overall vision and direction of PeoplePerHour, Xenios’ passion for product, relentless pursuit of innovation and deep obsession for customer service and user experience are the defining points of the company’s culture and ethos. Xenios holds an MA/MEng from Cambridge University and attended executive education at Harvard Business School.
